“I think we need more than this.” Those words were uttered by Katie at a weight loss meeting in London. Katie and her friends decided to plan a fun night out, and it grew into The Curvy Girls Club. Katie, a supplement sales person, is the founder and president of London’s most popular club for overweight individuals. Throughout the process, a problem with her thyroid causes Katie to lose weight without trying. She realizes that there are prejudices at every size and shape and that thin is the new fat.
Disclosure: I received this book as part of an advertorial.
Michele Gorman, an American born British writer, she has earned a place on the #1 on the humor list, the Top 10 on women’s fiction, and the Top 20 at Amazon UK. Educated in finance, she spent several years as a “bad” auditor before deciding to write down the stories in her head. In 1998, a romance worthy of a novel, brought her to Britain and there she has followed her passion for writing. She has authored several books, including the Single in the City Series and several stand-alone books.
We all tend to judge others by what they look like. Can you imagine a place where you aren’t judged by your weight or body fat percentage? That outings and events are created with the curvy girl in mind?
Then, join The Curvy Girls Club.
Katie and her friends start the club – for both men and women – after a fun night out at the theater. Follow along as Katie grows into herself and becomes aware that what’s on the inside is what counts – not the size of your jeans. Katie and her friends decide to push back against what society claims to be healthy weights and decide to help others live the lives they have now, and not wait until they lose that last 10 pounds. This is a heart-warming, hilarious story about living your life and being yourself, not matter how much the scale says you weigh.
